Pork green chili, place DO directly onto a bed of hot coals, add small chunks of diced pork. Add about three tablespoons of lard, place pork chunks into DO and fry till pork is very crunchy and alot of carmelized juices has formed on bottom of DO(so much flavor). Add a whole diced onion along with about 12 huge garlic cloves, smash garlic with the back side of camp ax or good size rock. Fry onion and garlic for a couple minutes, than add about a pound and half of flamed roasted Hatch green chillies, I get mine from the road side stand's that roast them on the spot. I have them roast the chillies till all the skin is smoking black, gives the chillies a nice smoked flavor, than I remove the skin and seeds at home. The moisture in the green chillies will help release the caramelization from bottom of DO. Add a can of crunched tomatoes, along with a teaspoon full of Oregano. Simmer for about 10 minutes than add a couple tablespoons of cornstarch mixed in water first to thicken chili. Grill boneless chuck steak over very hot coals on both sides to seal in the juces. Slice chuck steak about 1/8 inch thick. Place steak slices into rolled up tortillas. Smother burrito with pork green chili, graded sharp cheddar cheese, sour cream and pre-made guacamole. Green chili only takes about 45 minutes when prepared over very hot DO.

That just shows the importance of coffee before anything else in the morning.

Having read your posts over the years, I knew that you really did know that more coals need to be on the top.

Thanks for the green chilli recipe, that sounds increasable, it's basically all of my favorite things thrown together in a dutch oven.

Here's a super easy cobbler recipe:

1 - open a large can of peaches (or pears, or mix the two if you want) and pour the whole thing, including liquid, into the bottom of the dutch oven

2 - Take a yellow or white cake mix, cut a cube of butter into the cake mix, and sprinkle it on top of the peaches/pears

3 - Cook at 350 or so for 30-45 minutes. You can't really screw it up. It works every time and is a great dessert on the river.

I do as much food prep as possible at home before I leave, so I'll usually put the peaches in a snap-lid tupperware container so I don't have to deal with the can, and I'll mix the butter and cake mix together before I leave as well. If you do those two things at home, prep time on the river is about 3 minutes, then you can sit and relax while it's cooking. I sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top before cooking. I usually throw a can of whipped cream into the cooler. And I use Dutch Oven liners so I don't have to clean.

Chocolate Chip Cake

I was going to do the Pineapple Upside Down Cake as that is deelish! But already taken. Try this very easy Chocolate Chip Cake - can be stirred right in the dutch oven and no need to clean other pans:

1 pkg devils food cake mix
1/4 cup oil
2 eggs
1-1/2 cups water
1 four serving size pkg chocolate instant pudding mix
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat dutch oven some. Pour oil into it and tilt until bottom is covered. Put remaining ingredients in pan, stir with a fork until blended (about 2 minutes). Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes with standard coals on top and bottom.

Tamale Pie has been a go to for me for a couple decades. I make the innards about the same as Cowboy Kent, though I almost always use Sarah Lee cornbread mix for the topping (as you only need to add water to mix it) with green chiles, cheese and bacon bits mixed into the corn bread mix. I also usually put some beens in the innards.



Cowboy Kent makes a masa flour mix for the top that looks very simple:

Caverdan: do you do a 1:1 substitution on the amount of sour cream?

Nobody has mentioned this, but an important technique I have used when baking cakes and other things you don't want to pour into a hot DO is that you can always pre-heat the lid without pre-heating the whole DO.
